The errata for Lord Kroak in 8th edition states:
Page 61 – Lord Kroak, First Generation Spawning Change the last sentence to “If Lord Kroak casts the spell with irresistible force, then the spell automatically fails but no roll is made on the Miscast table.”
Does this seem wrong to anyone else? I only came to lizardmen when the latest army book came out, but my understanding is that once upon a time he was immune to miscasts. This errata seems to have taken the wrong thing from his power (the fact that the spell fails) instead of the thing it was actually trying to give (immunity from miscasts).
It seems to me that for his points cost, with this particular errata, he is quite underwhelming.
That basically makes him 100% useless.
I saw that as well, and agree that it makes him 100% useless.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
So in any words does that mean, (now that he's not good anymore) is it even worth buying him & using him as my main HQ?
nope, the 12 PD you can get wont cut it for his single spell... too many ways it can go wrong. So a normal slann can become much stronger for the same point cost!
I do hope they change the errata to make him worth while again. The best named character we had just became worthless in every point of view! And that is a shame.
